Turning the corner...

I feel like I've finally turned the corner in my foot surgery recovery. 

It's been a long five weeks.


Within the last 24 hours, I can do heel walking without incredible pain or my foot swelling up to three times its normal size.I'll be seeing the surgeon Tuesday for another x-ray and to get my walking cast. 

 Later today, my mom, sister and I are going shopping at my favorite antique mall as an early Mother's Day outing. I can't wait.  I'm sure there are treasures that need to be found.

Nice to be on the mend and heading out the door for a little treasure hunting. A perfect reward for the past five weeks...and then a walking cast! hurray!

I can so relate to your issues with your foot, and my cousin is going thru it right now also....the swelling, the pain, at times I thought I was better off with the arthritic joints! And then one day it started to get better, I wish I could say it was as soon as yours, mine was almost a year....but I had MAJOR surgery on all of my toes, and an artificial joint put in the big toe. I am glad to hear you are on the downhill side of this surgery! :) Sandy
